I see lots of owners just clean them but heres what happened:
After i drove about 60 highway miles I parked the car, 20 minutes later I went to start the car and it was stuttering than stalled (CEL Light came on). That night I ended up driving about 5 miles (stalling a few times and REALLY struggling to accel etc.) to my mechanic. He ran it through vagcom and as he thought it was the Mass Air Flow sensor. He unplugged it and my cars simply running rich
My question: Is my Mass Air Flow Sensor completely trashed or could i clean it (Either MAF Cleaner or 99% Rubbing Alcohol) and it would be as good as new?
I don't want to purchase the MAF Cleaner and special torx bits to remove the MAF from the housing if my MAF is already trashed..
If it sounds like my MAF is trashed does anyone have a site to get a new one? (ECS seems like a lot for that part).
Thanks in advance.
